The application is beautiful. They took advantage of all of the features the iPhone has to offer it's programmers. It's simple, which of course is critical when building an app for the iPhone.
I'm not surprised that Allscripts left out some major features of their Enterprise EHR, seemingly because the real estate provided by the iPhone (or any other mobile device) doesn't really allow for documenting/viewing a full note. Nonetheless, the ability to see a patient summary and even fax a note to an ER on a patient of yours is something I didn't expect. That's just a solid feature. The ability to verify lab results doesn't hurt either.
It's simple to use. I honestly feel like even the most technically challenged physician could jump on the iPhone and just start using this app (with maybe a short tutorial). The most difficulty they would probably have is getting the hang of the iPhone keyboard.
I'm excited to see this thing in action, and I'm excited to show physicians what it can do. My only question is: When will there be Voice Recognition on this thing?
Here's my video review of the Allscripts Remote App:
And here's one of Allscripts CIO Stanley Crane at HIMSS showing how it can be used:
